EssereAnimali has announced the rescue of three mink from a fur farm in Italy. In a statement they explained (translation), "This past summer we took three mink from a fur farm and released them in the wild, on the banks of a river. They did not wait a second to jump into the water and swim and dive. For the first time in their lives they were able to touch the ground with their feet and explore a real environment, one that was not a miserable cage. To see firsthand their desire to express themselves and to live and enjoy their freedom was a beautiful and emotional moment. Life has changed dramatically for these animals and we want them to represent what the other 200,000 mink prisoners on Italian farms desire, freedom."
